Dodgers | Andre Ethier not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:52:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 5. OF Scott Van Slyke will bat sixth and play left field.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has struggled of late, going 4-for-22 in his last 10 contests. However, he is batting .308 at Dodger Stadium and .273 versus lefties, so he merits some consideration in FantasyScore if you're looking for an inexpensive outfielder.

Dodgers | No Adrian Gonzalez Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:34:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Wednesday, July 1. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting at first base and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had only four hits in 18 at-bats in June as a bench option for LA, but he is hitting .300 (9-for-30) with two of his four home runs against southpaws this year. He's not a bad pick on FantasyScore tonight as a value play hitting in the heart of the Dodgers order.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out vs. southpaw

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:51:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Either ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has just 25 plate appearances over 20 games against lefties this season, so his lineup absence shouldn't be a surprise. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a nice upside target for FantasyScore players Friday. He has a .865 OPS against southpaws this season, and he is hitting in the heart of the order.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier sitting

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:58:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, against left-handed Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester. OF Scott Van Slyke is hitting cleanup in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) hasn't done much this year, but 13 of his 20 homers from 2012-2014 came against lefties in nearly identical sample sizes. He's an option for a one-day flyer on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke returns

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:35:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) will start in left field and hit sixth in the lineup in his return Wednesday, June 17, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) was hitting .286 against left-handed pitching earlier this season, and he'll have a relatively easy matchup against LHP Wandy Rodriguez to help him get back in the swing of things. Van Slyke is worth FantasyScore consideration as a GPP selection.

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 16:59:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) will be activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely will be a spot starter once he returns to the Dodgers. He could see time in the outfield and first base but is not a great option on FantasyScore when he plays.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke's injury not serious

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:38:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) isn't dealing with any major structural damage in his back after undergoing an MRI exam, according to manager Don Mattingly. Van Slyke was put on the disabled list with mid-back inflammation. He missed four games with back pain before playing over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: With Van Slyke out, Alex Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should be in the lineup regularly, either in left field or somewhere in the infield. With nine home runs in 93 at-bats, Guerrero can be a fine value pick on FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 10:05:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) was placed on the disabled list with a back issue Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: With Van Slyke out, Alex Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should continue to see regular playing time, and he's a nice value pick in the right matchups for his power stroke. Enrique Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Chris Heisey could see starts in utility roles.
